Stopped in for lunch over Labor Day weekend and no one else was there, but not sure why because the food was pretty good. I don't like hush puppies, but these were really good. Everything was tasty and the greek salad was huge. Prices were a bit high though.

The food here is very overpriced and most of our food was served cold. We spoke with the female manager and she seemed to want to argue.the only plus is its on the bay.

This is a tough one to review...

View 5, right on the bay watching the boat traffic

Food 4, everything we had was fresh and delicious

Atmosphere 3, I know it's just a crab house but come one, just bare-bones deck with A bunch of picnic tables, a few big containers from palm trees they probably had last year that now are full of weeds....nice touch ugh

Service, 2 (it's complicated)
I get the model, order at the front register and the food runner brings it, saving the need for a server and tips. But what happens when you're sitting there eating and you need a second thing of tartar sauce, or you realize forks and knives never came with the salads? Or when your paper towels roll ran out? That's right, you get up and start walking around trying to find someone. (All three happen to us however didn't bother trying to find silverware because the salad came at the same time as the Fish tacos so just decided to eat tacos while they were warm and ended up taking the salad to go rather than eating it for dessert .
And you feel like you're bothering the person you find because she knows she's not getting a tip. I would've preferred an extra 20% and had a waitress. Especially since 4 Corona cans cost me 24 bucks. Probably could've got them somewhere else for 24 including the tip. (and not had to get up when I needed another one)

I'm not a fan!

Very odd......this is their scone year open. This year they decided to not have waiters. You must review the menu and place your order at the front. The food delivery people walk around trying to find the correct table for the food they're carrying. Food was average to above average. Paid for jumbo crabs but they weren't big. I wonder what they will do next year? Their lack of service isn't reflected in their prices.

This was the first restaurant we went to in OC. I chose this restaurant because kids eat free and no need to tip. It was a stormy night while we were there so the outside deck was closed but we enjoyed eating inside and did not have to worry about a wait. I got the cream of crab soup and it was amazing. i can def. see why the soup was voted #1. The crab cake was also delicious! The location is amazing. Would def. go back
